REVIEWS OF Mississippi Museum of Art IN Mississippi

Michael&Shannon ForeverUs

Love this place...so beautiful and peaceful

Sam Lewis

It has a nice interior. It's probably best when you're going for an event because the actual art selection is relatively small. They hold fun events though, and looking into it is a good idea

Vickie chiodo-maung

Very unique and engaging - loved it!

holly varnado

Man3atingChicken

Brittney Paxton

Joe Johnson

Amazing artwork and friendly staff.

sarah gregory

I loved the fact that it was free, photos are allowed, and all the artwork is from Mississippi artists. I showed up about 40 minutes before close and no one tried to rush me out or follow me around like at other art places I have been. This is a neat little place to visit when in Jackson.

Jeffery Moore

I love the exhibits but I also love the cafe. I chef is awesome. Every 3 week of the month there is a custom menu. Favorite time to visit.

Donald Leonard

Very friendly staff. There was an area for the kids as well, which made the visit more easy for the family. It is free to see and definitely worth a stop!

Zaneta Bryant

Coming back to it!!

Sherkita Collins

My nephew and niece worried me, so we finally stopped. They had a great time and got to learn a little about cotton, the Mississippi Delta, and they got to see some pretty cool art. I'll be taking them periodically as the new collections come to the museum.

Zheillah Winaryanta

First time here, I'm from Houston. Go to the museum to join the Muslim Festival in Mississippi. Before I dance, I tour the museum. Do not know how much the ticket price for entry, I found Pablo Picasso. Not that crowded as Museum Fine Arts in Houston thoug.

TheDayt306

Sonny Sweatt

Super helpful staff and they do lots of events!

M Miller

Awesome events.

Chris Gaun

Great little museum in the heart of Jackson. They have awesome events here - e.g. family movie screenings. There are a bunch of kids sections and the special exhibits were always great and educational. In one exhibit the artist played with shapes to form art from shadows. The picture is one example from that temporary collection

Henry Weidmann McCoy

Gem in downtown Jax this place has awesome art and it's free??

Alexandra Knowlton

Lovely outing with my daughter.

Eugene Marshall

This place packs a surprisingly large punch. The space itself is beautiful, and the exhibition was quite stirring. The lady who issued my ticket was more than friendly, she says genuinely hospitable.

Stacy Andrews

Great place for all ages. Rotating exhibits require a ticket, but the front areas of the museum are free of charge. Once a month, "Music in the City" is free on a Tuesday night which features great classical or folk music. It is co-sponsored by St. Andrew's Cathedral. There are art camps for kids and "after hour" events once a month on Thursdays ... still free.

Alexis Hart

The Mississippi Museum of Art has, in addition to displaying world class art exhibits and presenting various events, hosts local artists as they teach, demonstrate and mentor attendees. This small museum is an excellent visitation spot for tourists to Jackson, Mississippi.

Great exibit going on celebrating the 200th anniversary of Mississippi. All of the art on display now has some relationship to the state. Was free for us, dont know if that is because the anniversary or not.

Steve Minyard

No exhibits were open and there is no longer a cafe. Very disappointing

Awesome! !

Maggie Ethridge

One of my favorite places in Jackson. The fountains, garden, and of course the art...all must see !

Tyoka Eda

Came during one of their "Art and Coffee" events, and it was very excellent. The staff makes you feel welcome, the speaker was very interactive and informative while also providing great insight to the history and culture of the pieces presented.

Emily White

This museum looks like a cool place, but unfortunately when I went to visit all but one gallery was closed for construction to install new exhibits. It seems like poor planning to be installing multiple exhibits at once in such a small museum.

Chuck Creamer

Nice setting for a wedding

John Burroughs

Wonderful display of high school artistic winners. Incredible talented young people, I was just blown away!

Greg Altorfer

Nice place

Eoin Costello

Good collection on loan at the moment. Friendly staff.

Shasta Vaughn

Most of this museum is free and we saw some really neat pieces. Has a shop and a cafe. The kids enjoyed looking at the art and splashing in the water out front.

Robert Lowery

Great museum and book store.

Christine Williams

Enjoyed the group activities. Lunch, tour and painting.

Tony Garcia

Fun visit to the Museum of Art! It has a couple of floors of art work, paintings, and sculptures to walk through. Interesting works with some very original sculptures. It has a beautiful garden outside coupled with a small fountain garden. Its open to the public located in the heart of Jackson Downtown, its worth a visit

Stephanie Moore

Kids programs are fabulous. Third Thursday programs are lovely.

Colette Cunningham

They have new exhibits now go and

Bryan Mulvaney

We really enjoyed this museum that leans heavily on local, regional artists. Excellent museum overall.

Crissty Lugo

FABULOUS and an amazing day to visit. April 5, 2019

Don Baylies

Nice place to visit it's very interesting

Rachel-Phuong Le

Great place to hold an outdoor event. I've been to the movie and food truck events here in the last 2 years, it's been wonderful. Plenty of seatings and the food trucks have been great!

Megan Randell

I very much enjoyed my visit. The staff was very kind and helpful. While they are a smaller museum they have several interactive sections for guests which I can see would be very helpful for those with children. They had great parking. They also had beautiful gardens and the museum had a few tables set aside, in the cafe, for those who wished to draw.

Mary Coles-Washington

Wonderful museum. Something for all ages to enjoy.

Brandy Hanna

Very friendly staff willing to discuss the exhibit and even gave of information about the viewing benches designer. The grounds were excellent as well.

Brian Little

Quaint little museum; very nice

Mike LeBoeuf

Stimulating exhibit! Knowledgeable staff. Expert curator!

Leadbelly

This is the premier museum in Mississippi. I'm a regular, but visitors are often amazed at the quality of the exhibits, staff, not to mention the food. Currently there is an exhibit called When Modern Became Contemporary that you should not miss. The facility is great for events such as Company parties, weddings and other special events. It's very cool to hold an event and have the ability walk-through a top-notch museum at your own pace. There are numerous events each week, but my favorite is probably Third Thursday which is held in the adjacent Art Garden and features local bands, special food and drinks, and is a really good time. Don't miss it!

Danielle Ramos

It was spacious and well organized. I loved the quilt exhibit based on slavery times--very bold. Also featured was a MS born native American artist that was very interesting. Depending on your level of interest you can probably make it through thi exhibit in about an hour.

Pamela Geisleman

Wonderful display of high school artistic winners. Nice, interesting ; just all around fun place to take your family and friends.

Victor Booth

Incredible exhibits!

James Partee

Mississippi Museum of Art is a wonderful place to visit both as an individual and as a family. It is a beautiful part of Jackson MS!

Anastasia Taylor

I am an intern there, so maybe I am a little biased, but the staff is awesome and they really do try to make interesting programs for community outreach

Raj Hathiramani

Great space and collection, downtown location

david anderson

A-/for the facilities. Attended wedding reception and tore a hole in a pair of suit pants on one of the chairs /D. 0verall rating (C+)

Kevin L

Awesome art museum. I'm not from Jackson, but come over for a weekend getaway every now & then. Love to stop here & check it out. The building & grounds are super cool too!

Robert Bergstrom

Loved it! A gem in Jackson where adults and kids will both find interesting things to check out.

Frank Zeimetz

Nice little museum. They have a Warhol of the triple evlis.

Amaya Kurosu

Very nice! Small and relaxing. Perfect for a date or just to explore what our city has to offer.

Kristen Tordella-Williams

Great display of local and international artists. I always love going to the Third Thursday events when the MMA is open late for a gathering of arts, music, and creatives. There's also a good restaurant and beautiful gardens.

Elaine Maisel

The MMA is one of my favorite places to spend time in Jackson. I've been coming to the museum long before I moved here. They offer world-class travelling exhibits and have a permanent collection of fantastic art by Mississippi artists/relating to Mississippi. The art garden is excellent. Classes and events for children, adults, students, and the whole family are top notch. The facility and grounds are immaculate. Art is presented well. Special events are plentiful and inviting. I have a membership to the museum, which is not expensive and offers all sorts of extra perks, discounts and exclusive viewings of working studios and private collections around town. The museum is a popular place for weddings, chamber music, and high-end receptions. It is worth going out of your way to see the collection and attend an event if you are in Central Mississippi.

Latasha Willis

A great getaway without leaving town!

Trey Graef

Quiet peaceful history lesson

Ed Kosmicki

Always a good place to see Mississippi art

Shawn Batlivala

Nice to visit when in Jackson. The restaurant is quite good too.

Emily Kamber

Beautiful museum. Outstanding pieces of art. Must see in Jackson.

ssbeets

I really enjoyed the exhibit and I loved that they had some very kid friendly activities. We journaled, admired art, got to see cotton from another perspective, learned about lines, and had fun in the water fountain mosaic. It really was a great way to spend the day enriching ourselves and it didn't cost an arm and leg. Plus the museum had some inexpensive items at the gift shop.

Aaliyah Chatman

More exhibits from POC/WOC please!

Lukasz Bogdanski

Art nice, parking hard to find, wife draged me along.

Lisa Cantrell

We travel all over the country and try to see as many art museums as possible. A few have stood out for the objects and the curating and the MMA has been added to our list of favorites. From the outside art garden (which we did not spend much time in because it was raining) to the wonderfully light filled atrium at the entrance to the displays this was a visit we thoroughly enjoyed. We were there for the exhibit called picturing Mississippi which only runs until July 8, 2018 so if you can get to it, do. They have events all the time and a very good gift shop with lots of art and nice gifts.

Cathy Witherspoon

Black Out is a great exhibit!

Ali Nabavi

Very beautiful place! The grounds are extremely well maintained where there's a lovely garden with a walking path throughout, the exterior is very nicely architected, and the whole thing just gives an air of beauty and tranquility. And I haven't even toured the museum yet! I've only gone there for events on the lawn and Art After Hours on every third Thursday of every month.

Patrick Cantrell

Gorgeous gardens outside, but not much to look at inside.

Janese Lewis

This is one of my favorite places to take family and friends.

Roz Mays

The museum has a GREAT silhouette exhibit. I was grateful for their free admission, free wifi and areas to lounge. The gardens are beautiful. I would definitely recommend visiting the museum.

Janice Jackson

The Art Museum is a great place to explore and enjoy exhibits and art work . But I really enjoy the level of service they offer for groups or individuals who choose to rent spaces for special events. It is absolutely awesome and they offer a variety of menus for every occasion. The fees and prices are easy to view on their website. Menu options and request are made after contacting the Museum by phone or email probably.

Shequita Townsend

This is the city of Jacksons official premiere art museum. They don't have big premieres often but have been allowed by many foreign governments and museums to use their big name artists pieces. They've even been known to get some Van Goughs and such.

bradley fedrick

I enjoyed it. I spent 3 hours here!

K Ammons

Very friendly helpful staff. What we saw was beautiful but we were one day early for the reopening of most of the exhibits. Hope to revisit one day in the near future.

Afrah Ali

This is one of my fav things to do in Mississippi. I loved all the lovely dinners I have been to here. Def a wonderful place to host parties and events

Jameskia Thompson

A great place to visit on a Saturday morning

Michael Lomax

Amazing historical art from New artist and old alike... If your in to art or history I definitely recommend the Mississippi museum of art!!

Poppy

You can always count on the current exhibit being exceptional.

William McNeel

I remember coming here while I was very young for The Palace Exhibit despite what any New Yorker's opinion of our state or art this place is 5 star. Very education and the tour and staff were very professional.

Robyn Latham

Great area, easy parking. Gardens could be expanded, they are the best. Front desk older gentlemam is very helpful.

Amethyst Woodard

Cool place and it's free
